Is it me, or does the U last look softer when done up in suede? I don't just mean the nap diffusing light or something, I mean the side walls of the toe box not dropping off as sharply as calf skin.

Love red-brown suede.
Thank you sir, honestly it could be my picture. When I compare it to my other vass shoes/boot on U last they look same to me.

I am ordering a pair of Chukkas in mid brown suede, but I am having trouble deciding between U and F last. U seems like it would be a little more formal like a Crockett chukka, while F last seems like it is trying to be both formal and casual. Thoughts from the group, especially from those who have either?

 

Thanks!

f last is like a turkey sandwich, and u last feels likes a turkey sandwich with alfalfa and no mayo

I don't think either is more formal. Just chisel versus sleek round. I have plenty of Vass U last shoes. The only chukkas I have of theirs are F last. Wouldn't swap them for U. Also wouldn't rule out getting a pair in U down the road. Which is a long way of saying get the ones you like - it's just a matter of preference anyway.

what can be said there are so many images online frown.gif

open ended question only lead to more questions: i mean are you looking for casual shoe, are you looking to wear it formally? will it be both? do you have any other chiseled shoes? or are they mostly rounded toes?

Here's made to order Vass schüs with F-last, burgundy suede, their newer double monk model, double-to-single tapered oak bark soles, brass buckles, undyed welt top and white stitching. The shade is very difficult to capture with my poor-ass camera, but I'd describe it as a dark red with plenty of brown in it. Ruddy in sunshine, browner indoors - the top-down picture shows it best.

Hey man. I meant the quip above in what I detected to be the tongue-in-cheek spirit of your description. If you were being completely serious, then I'm sorry that I (and several others, it seems) couldn't make sense of your reply regarding sandwiches.

 

As for my posts having value, I guess it would depend on whom you ask. I've given fitting advice across many brands to others like me who need extra wide fittings or have questions about "lesser" brands that you're openly not interested in. Therefore, I'll overlook this comment, since you clearly have no reason to find any of my knowledge useful.

 

I have, on the other hand, enjoyed your often insightful contributions, and can even appreciate the pithier ones that seem to have no purpose other than banter. Like the comment I made above that offended you.

So interesting given that i experience most leather sourced from Tärnsjö to be pretty thick when coming from Skoaktiebolaget. Given that i have found it excellent for more sturdy modells and never actually considered it suitable for a shaft. On the Skoaktiebolaget thread i think more was of this opinion and it was even noted that given the thickness Tärnsjö grain rolls a bit like cordovan when breaking in. 

 

Location of the tannery in question btw, https://goo.gl/maps/RMpAEvhuaav. Note though that the county side of Sweden are not that well covered by Street View and similar.

Hey guys, 

 

I would really like to get a pair of Vass on the F last but I have no experience on this last. I hear it is comparable to rain but I have some minor heel slip at 11UK so I am a bit cautious...any advice?

It is nothing like Rain, which is closer to U in my mind. Rain seems to have more "dead"—wasted?—space, but U is closer to the foot. U last appears to have a sharper chisel, whereas Rain is a soft square.

I believe Vass to quite possibly be the finest price to quality ratio in the world today...

 

Every time I visit this thread I wonder why I don't own a pair...

I actually found this to be extremely helpful regarding the nuances and differences of Vass lasts:

Hope this helps.
